When customers see our Sewnatra oak cabinet, one word always pops out of their mouth: "CUTE". Besides being cute, this cabinet offers most of the features our larger cabinets have but in a compact size. The cabinet's air-lift mechanism raises and lowers your sewing machine into place with a simple push. The mechanism is adjustable for all types of sewing machine base heights. The cabinet also comes with a unique universal insert, which creates a flush sewing surface when the lift mechanism is in the flatbed position. The cabinet can be used for your sewing machine or serger. The cute shuttered door has 2 thread spindles and 2 trays for your sewing accessories. When closed the shuttered door gives the cabinet a cottage look and could be used as a night stand or other fine piece of furniture in a room. The classic oak-grain finish complements any decor and allows your cabinet to blend into any room or match other oak furniture.

The cabinet ships in 2 boxes and is assembled using a hammer, a screwdriver, a wrench and about 1 hour's worth of time.


  • Sew in any position. EZ-Lift air mechanism lets you sew flatbed or free-arm at any height. Also provides easy, effortless storage.
  • Accommodates machines up to 18-7/8" wide × 12-9/16" deep and 13-1/8" tall.
  • For flatbed sewing, machine fits into a unique universal insert to create a flush surface. Universal insert will accommodate sewing machines no larger than 17" wide × 7-1/4" deep. (A machine-specific insert can be purchased separately.)
  • Plenty of storage room with 2 trays and 2 thread spindles on the door. Full door conceals machine and sewing items.
  • Fold-out leaf provides additional work surface and is supported by sturdy snag free hinges and leaf support.
  • Handy casters for increased portability; stable when locked.

    Well designed

    Posted by Ruff Read on 28th Feb 2014

    My oak cabinet was darker than I had expected, but otherwise finished off very well. I am 80 years old, and it took me about 4 hours to assemble. Only the door trays required new holes to fit. My wife loves it.

    It is very good.

    Posted by RIKY VAN RIJN on 12th Jan 2012

    I couldn't assemble it myself so I had a handyman do it. It looks very good and my big serger machine actually fits into it (without the insert). Especially, it is small enough for what I want.

    Nice cabinet; 2.5 hour assembly

    Posted by MaineSewer on 12th Jan 2012

    This cabinet arrived very quickly after I placed the order in late December, but because my co-assembler then sustained a broken wrist, the cabinet was assembled only last week. Took the two of us 2.5 hours. Some vague directions and some very poor quality photographs in the assembly instructions manual are all I can complain about. Quality of cabinet is good, and I am loving using it!

    A Great Sewing Cabinet

    Posted by Larry McMains on 12th Jan 2012

    Only some vagueness in parts of the instruction manual (and the ridiculous estimate of 45 minutes to put it together) keep me from giving this a 5-star rating. The quality of the cabinet was excellent, all the parts were there, screws etc. were packaged with the parts they were used with, and the completed cabinet is solid, looks good, and works very well. The airlift height adjustment process, which some have claimed to be very difficult, went very well. My mother-in-law, for whom the cabinet was purchased, is extremely pleased with the cabinet and the lift system.

    It was perfect for what I wanted. It looks nice in my room, takes up little space. Easy to assemble. It is also shipped quickly. I would do business with you again.
